Description

I’ve been dreaming of a long-sleeved dress with a good stretch and same style of neckline as this top (I don’t know the name for that heart-like, v-line seam). I had some stretchy scraps lying around so I attempted to sew (without pattern) a long-sleeved shirt along those lines, just for kicks and practice.

Material Notes

cotton-spandex … this was also good practice sewing stretch fabrics (used zig-zag stitch, etc.)

    I love it! Did you really make it with no pattern?? The shape of it is perfect. The design and colors are lovely.

    BTW a 4-thread serger (overlock machine) can sew the seams of jersey fabrics perfectly as well as cut and overlock them at the same time. If you don’t have one you can use a stretch needle and a straight stitch (that’s what I used to use), just play with the seam tension so the seams don’t show and use the same color thread as the fabric of course…

    It looks great! Good job!
